Taking Submissions: The Omens Call: A Horror Anthology

March 28, 2021

Deadline: March 28th, 2021
Payment: $20 (for 2,000–5,000 words) // $30 (for 5,000–7,500 words)
Theme: Horror that explores the prophetic nature of omens

Where the carrion lay, the ravens will circle…

The world has its messengers, its harbingers of bad tidings. Ravens, vultures, and untold creatures that roam between the many layers of reality. The air thickens with the danger of the thundering storm, and the world holds its breath, waiting for your next move.

“The Omens Call” is an horror anthology exploring the prophetic nature of omens. Bad omens, nightmarish superstitions, ghastly premonitions, we want stories that speak the language that we cannot understand. We’re after atmospheric, moody, grim, dark tales of wonder, woe, death, and the inexplainable.

Dare you heed the call?
